I found quite a few great knitting books this past summer at the secondhand stores. Last week I chose a pattern and some yarn to make a vest for myself (unlike the last few years where I knit gifts for everyone else ;)
It was relaxing to let my fingers fly over sections of patternless pieces, laughing at the thought of passing slipped stitches over and tracking k2, p3, k8, or RSS and t2r. Somewhat zen-like.
The three sections need to be blocked (tonight) so that I can assemble them and add the neckline garter edging tomorrow.
And tonight I will also be tackling this.......
I'm moving away from my more traditional color schemes to stretch my imagination :)
Have a great Friday!
